Annabeth is terrified. Just when she's about to be reunited with Percy -- after six months of being apart, thanks to Hera -- it looks like Camp Jupiter is preparing for war. As Annabeth and her friends Jason, Piper, and Leo fly in on the Argo II, she can't blame the Roman demigods for thinking the ship is a Greek weapon. With its steaming bronze dragon masthead, Leo's fantastical creation doesn't appear friendly. Annabeth hopes that the sight of their praetor Jason on deck will reassure the...

In 1948, four very different Britons are thrown together in a central-London terrace. Queenie Bligh, an unremarkable working-class woman, is awaiting the return from war service of her husband Bernard. In the meantime, she takes as a boarder a black Jamaican man who was briefly billeted to her house during the war. Then Gilbert's new bride, the prim and proud Hortense, turns up from Jamaica bearing misapprehension about English life and the place of a black woman in it. Then there's the...

Advice in rhyme for proceeding in life; weathering fear, loneliness, and confusion; and being in charge of your actions. "Don't be fooled by the title of this seriocomic ode to success; it's not 'Climb Every Mountain,' kid version. All journeys face perils, whether from indecision, from loneliness, or worst of all, from too much waiting. Seuss' familiar pajama-clad hero is up to the challenge, and his odyssey is captured vividly in busy two-page spreads evoking both the good times...

The faction-based society that Tris Prior once believed in is shattered -- fractured by violence and power struggles and scarred by loss and betrayal. So when offered a chance to explore the world past the limits she's known, Tris is ready. Perhaps beyond the fence, she and Tobias will find a simple new life together, free from complicated lies, tangled loyalties, and painful memories. But Tris's new reality is even more alarming than the one she left behind. Old discoveries are quickly...
